Bowie BIC announces our online Fall 2020 8(a) Accelerator program.

Here’s what our graduates are saying:

“The class was hugely beneficial for us. When we entered the class, we had one 8(a) sole source contract. Since then, we have been awarded 5 more 8(a) contracts. That’s a total of 6 awards within our first year in the 8(a) program. I definitely credit the class with teaching us to better communicate our value proposition, providing us with exposure and access to new agencies, and helping us to start to focus on the opportunities with the highest probability of success. Thanks for all that you do.”

Melissa Peterson, CEO, Blue Sky Innovative Solutions (Fall 2019 8(a) Accelerator Program Graduate)
